Public warned of dangers of summer bonfires

Mon, 12 Aug 2013

The public are being reminded of the dangers of leaving garden fires unattended during the summer.

It follows an incident at a property in Abbeylands yesterday.

At approximately 12.15pm fire crews were dispatched to an address after reports of smoke issuing from the garden.

The blaze was quickly extinguished using a high pressure hose reel.

The Fire and Rescue Service says garden fires can spread very quickly through trees and undergrowth - people have been urged to always extinguish a fire before leaving it.
